We don't start a job that we can't finish... that's the American way - Paul Wolfowitz Our 2015-2016 campaign was yet another great season for all the children who were able to embrace the grind and finish what they started. They were prime examples of our adopted adage "Those Who Stay Will Be Champions." Through hard work and perseverance our team scored its traditional local team championships while our girls stayed strong after a 4th place finish at the California Girls Middle School State as we won our 17th straight Vallejo City Championship.
There was never a dull moment as our 8th grade boys travel squad competed in Alabama and our girls followed suit with a very successful trip to Arkansas. KPIX-CBS featured us on their morning broadcast and our program also hosted an envoy during our Philippines Wrestling Exchange!
